Kings’ Bibby sidelined with thumb injury

Sacramento, CA (Sports Network) – Sacramento Kings guard Mike Bibby will be
sidelined for three weeks with an injured right thumb.

According to a report in the Sacramento Bee, Bibby injured the thumb Sunday
night in the Kings’ preseason win over the New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets
in Reno.

Tests on Monday revealed the injury as a mallet thumb, meaning the tendon
along his thumb tip was separated from the distal bone.
